Sneem II: Painting-in-Progress

One day in the summer of 1991 I got the train to Killarney and then I walked. For seven miles out on the Iveragh Peninsula past the Lakes for I saw no reason to stop. Hitched a lift then only to be scolded by the driver for walking so far.
-People won't stop for you here
-You did

The next lift hitched was with a van full of kids, vegetables and chickens, and it took me to the village of Sneem. With Tidy Town Winner written all over it, and the sunshine leaving me for rain, Sneem made an impression. Regretting not bringing a coat I started to walk again. Destined for the end of the peninsula, for this house, I got another lift after a few miles that took me to Caherdaniel giving me time to check out the Fort before dark.

In darkness and rain I walked the last four miles up the mountains into the clouds. Some people say I've been there ever since.
